I lived in Turkey for over four years and I've seen this city fall to consumerism. Bagdat Stree is: over priced, over-crowded and soulless. The Turkish culture is falling to the west, as materialism is the top priority - if you look good, then you must be cool. Too bad money can't buy manners.

This is famous shopping street in Istanbul. It was located near our hotel so we checked it out. Nothing special but still a worth visiting. Little shops along the road, a lot of trafik so we decided to cheese retaurant not beside the road.

If you are a traveler who hasn't walked in Chicago "Mag Mile" or "Beverley Hills", this place gives you a nice feeling.... seeing Burberry and Louis Vuitton sitting across the street from each other.... Otherwise it is a nice street with nice cafe and coffee shops... it is in the Asian part of the city....

Who wants to come to Istanbul for shopping international brands? The boulevard is the classical fashion street from every big city in the world. For sure you have those brands in your country as well. And prices are exactly the same. you can also find turkish brands of clothes, especially bride's dresses, but in my oppinion not spectacular. And you... More

Amazing street in Anodolu part of Istanbul offering great avenue for shopping and food/drinks. It's not a real attraction and by buildings you can see it's quite new. It is for fun and few hours to experience (one more time) different energy of Istanbul. Maybe not the easiest place to get there, but still worth it.

What a pity to write down such a bad comment about this nice spot of the city,due to ongoing many renovation constructions in and around Bağdat street as a part of plan run by Istanbul Municipality,there are always several heavy big construction trucks through this famous street and its side connection roads,round o'clock,disturbing the traffic very much and limiting the...

This road was known as the old trade route and has now evolved into a open air shopping street, not really a attraction, you may do the same shopping in central Istanbul. If you don't speak turkish you do not get far in most of the shops and restaurants and it was the first that Turkish hospitality was far below... More

If you want open air shopping then this street can be fun, but if you only have a few days for the city, cross this off your list. Most shops are between Suadiye and Caddebostan traffic lights, as are most of the restaurants... but so are most of the crowds, and at certain times of the week, especially weekends, the... More
